Overview

Sex Work and Sex Workers is the most comprehensive volume on the 'sex industry' ever published in Australia. This is a challenging and timely book, particularly in view of the rapidly evolving attitudes of society, the continuing concerns about AIDS, and the recent changes in prostitution laws in several states. A wide range of contributors, from prostitutes and brothel owners to academics and social workers, makes this a lively volume providing illuminating insights into a world unfamiliar but still of hypnotic interest to many readers. Topics covered include chapters on the history of prostitution, the law, sexual health, and social analyses on female, male, transsexual and migrant prostitution. This book will appeal to a wide readership including students in the social sciences, public health, social work, law schools and police academies. Professionals such as lawyers, medical and health workers, social workers, counsellors, police officers, and policy makers will find it indispensable.
